It looks like FX's Marvel series "Legion" will have plenty of action and weirdness, but that certainly is a welcome thing for fans who are looking forward to something different. The "X-Men" spinoff will introduce Dan Stevens as David Haller, a young mutant struggling to control his multiple powers.

But will there be consequences if David can keep his personalities in line? Will it mean trouble for Aubrey Plaza's Lenny and the rest of the world?

New 'Legion' Trailer Questions What Is Real, Highlights David Haller's Struggle With Reality

Show creator Noah Hawley has already teased on "Legion" being just as crazy as David Haller can be. The new trailer for the FX series has David questioning reality and a longer glimpse at Aubrey Plaza as his best friend Lenny.

It's easy to see that David is a dangerously powerful mutant in the "Legion" teaser. But fans are also wondering whether this could mean bad things could happen to Lenny in the Marvel spinoff.

Is Aubrey Plaza's Lenny Actually One Of David Haller's Multiple Personalities In 'Legion'?

In the comic books, David Haller has multiple personalities that he takes from several different people. The "Legion" Comic-Con trailer already hinted on how David "absorbs" these personalities, so is it possible that Aubrey Plaza's character will suffer the same fate in the Marvel spinoff? Will David end up taking Lenny's personality in the FX series?

When Is The 'Legion' Air Date?

The new teaser confirms that the pilot episode of "Legion" will air on FX in February 2017. The show also stars Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris and Bill Irwin.

GamenGuide has previously reported that there is also a possibility that David Haller's real father Charles Xavier will have a cameo in "Legion" and could help the mutant control his powers. Keep checking GamenGuide for more updates on the Marvel spinoff series.
